English term or phrase:locule
This is the another paragraph in the text about fruits and seeds of maples which I also don't understand:
Two ovules are found in each locule, but only one develops after fertilization. Occasionally mericarps with two seeds have been observed.
What are the ovules in seeds?
What are locules?
What is the mericarp?
